Hello World, my past few articles and poems have been based on the pursuit and cultivation of "Love." This article will align with the same idea, however, under a slightly different premise. For example, many of us are fortunate to dwell within a relationship that is full of mental, physical and emotional fulfillment. Yet many of us do not realize the mental, physical and emotional obligation, we have to ourselves, so as to contribute to the longevity of a healthy relationship.
The following ideas should help sustain your current healthy relationship. Fortunately, I am able to offer these opinions, not just from a wisdom perspective, yet from an educated standpoint, as I hold a master degree in psychology.
1: Personal Health. If you engage in some form of aerobic exercise for at least 30 consecutive minutes, at least three times a week; one of many benefits is an increase in your libido.
2: Mental Contributions. The type of mental contributions I am referring to comes in several forms. I'll speak of two; the first is "Verbal Assurance." When one offers statements of "Gratification" (for example, "You are mentally and physically attractive to me.") to their spouse, those statements are stored mentally and help sustain the level of mental satisfaction between couples. The second is "Visible Assurance." Body language is said to contribute to 70% of personal communication. Offer your partner an "Alluring Glance." For example, with raised cheeks and wide eyes, look at your spouse and allow she or he, to be preview to your viewing pleasure.
3: Emotional Stability. In my opinion, the emotional support one provides their partner is the foundation of the relationship. The strength within the emotional stability-foundation is cultivated on a daily basis. When one offers their spouse the ability to be wrong, imperfect and to an extent "weak," that emotional gift will help maintain the euphoria within the relationship.
To all my readers, please take heed to these words! Trust in your own ability to provide these three gifts to your spouse. In time, your contributions will yield great returns, which keep your relationship healthy and strong. Remember, you are not perfect, so don't place perfection on a pedestal. Instead, relish in the imperfections that define your personality and direct them in a healthy and positive path.
